Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Rainy Day Show

N.b., not looking for a show where it actually rained on that day, or a show to cheer one up during a rainy day. Rather, just looking for a show that complements a rainy early spring afternoon.

Recommendations? Many thanks.

7/17/76 - second set from Comes a Time -> through the encore . . . simply sublime

5/3/72 - second set from Truckin' through Wharf Rat - the extended Other One->Bobby McGee->Other One sequence is a wonderful accompaniment to most any rain event - from a gentle rain with quiet fog to serious rain with those dark, storm clouds building, this one covers the spectrum -

6/29/76 - Mission plus second set - especially the Playin'->Wheel->Playin', that St. Stephen->NFA has been a good backdrop "with the wind and rain" - with its slower tempo, it has an underwater-like ambience that,in this case, has a certain chilled out kind of appeal

hope these work for you

Great recommendations on the '76 shows. Haven't listened to them in ages.

Have never heard the '72. Am checking out right now. Many thanks.

Stream this instead. An old Grateful Dead Hour with a Rain theme.
